Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest Winners!Let There Be Winners!
After much deliberation, we have chosen our winners! We had many excellent entries and it was hard to choose just three winners. I hope everyone enjoyed participating in this as much as we did reading the entries!
The theme of the contest was "Monsters and Creatures." All entries were judged on originality, skill level and emotional impact.

About this time every year, ghastly fiends slink out from their hidden lairs. Horrendous beasts come forth to feast. Our nightmares spring to life. It's time to imprison these horrors safely into story form in our Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest! The theme for this contest is "Monsters and Creatures."
Halloween is fast approaching, so let's celebrate by breaking out the pens and pencils (or keyboards)!
This contest will run from Sept. 20th, 2013 to Nov. 1st 2013.
Fan Fiction only.
The theme is "Monsters and Creatures." Your entry must include some kind of monster or creature.
Stories must be written on or after Sept. 20th, specifically for this contest.
Word count: 3000 words maximum, no minimum
Proper grammar, spelling, punctuation is important.
Stories must comply with dA rules and guidelines (no porn).
One entry per person.
Originality. A fan fiction about a woman being cornered by vampires, who then proceeds to beat the undead crud out of them, may seem interesting ... unless it is a Buffy the Vampire Slayer story. That's another day at the "office" for her. Stories will be judged on their uniqueness.
Skill. Grammar, spelling and punctuation will be judged.
Impact. How much emotional impact does the entry have? Does it make us laugh, cry, tremble, cheer, and so forth?

In our Witches of East End Contest, we challenged you to illustrate a scene or element from one of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tales: "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," or "The Raven." The Creative team behind the Witches of East End have hand-picked three winners, with the top winner earning a spot for their artwork in the upcoming season finale of Witches of East End! Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations, winners!
This is our favorite. It's in the color palette and tone of the Beauchamp house and would be very easy to fit in. It also has great subtext for Asgard as well as Poe. Totally love it!
We love the darkness of this piece and how much it reminded us of Aunt Wendy, while still tying into the Poe theme. You can feel from this art that the cat truly has a story to tell beyond its shadow!
This piece has a very haunting, strong, and dark emotion that relates both to Witches of East End and Edgar Allen Poe. The aspects of the room (the staircase, chair, etc.) combined with the power of the heart make us feel as if this portrait could come to life!
